View Full Version : [ubuntu] Right click menu shadows disappeared on desktop & Nautilus

July 3rd, 2010, 01:38 PM
Ubuntu 10.04 - Right click menu shadows have disappeared on desktop & in Nautilus but are still present on the panel, main menus and other apps. Changing theme and turning on / off desktop effects make no difference. Any ideas?

In Compiz settings open window decoration and replace text under shadow windows from "any" to "any (class=Tooltip | Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu | Unknown)". I got this info from following thread http://wwww.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1521911

That trick did not work for me. Still no shadows under desktop and Nautilus right-click menus for me :(

Anyone else experiencing this peculiar issue?

FYI, Iím running Natty.

If you are using Nautilus Elementary, there's no shadow when right click on desktop or in Nautilus because of the conflict with Compiz. Do these steps to solve it:
- In Nautilus : select menu Edit->Preferences->Tweaks -> under Application uncheck "Enable rgba transparency".
- In CCSM : Enable Windows Decoration, at Windows shadow line, replace "any" with "any (class=Tooltip | Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu | Unknown)" (without quotes).
- If there's still no shadow, restart Nautilus by typing this line in Terminal : "nautilus -q" (without quotes).:popcorn:

Disabling rgba transparency did the trick! :p
